Main Line Today Spotlights Scout and Molly’s Elena Samane

Main Line Today has put the spotlight on Paoli based Elena Samane of Scout & Molly’s in a Q&A feature, where the fashionista describes her personal style, talks about her favorite designers and style icons, and gives tips for winter fashion.

Mentioning Donna Karan, BCBG, Tom Ford and Victoria Beckham among her favorite designers, Samane also lists new brands from California and Australia like Stillwater and Somedays Lovin. She also says that the opening of Scout & Molly’s is a chance to expand of her horizons.

“The ’70s fashion trend is one of my favorites right now, with the flowing silhouettes and pretty patterns,” comments Samane about top winter clothing trends. “I always loved the romantic look of lace, so I wear tops with contrasting lace inserts for daytime, and lace dresses and blouses for nighttime events. I also like the edgy look that leather gives to a simple shift dress or leggings. New vegan leather is so soft and wears beautifully.”

Over 1,000 Pounds of Chicken Recalled by Wegman’s

New York based Wegmans is recalling over 1,000 pounds of chicken after a federal inspector found that the grocery store chain had altered its production schedule to include Sunday which is outside its approved hours of operation. As a result, chicken products made on that day were never inspected.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture issued a Class 1 recall, which is classified as a situation that has “a reasonable probability” that ingesting the product will result in serious adverse health consequences or death.

The chain, which has several stores in Chester County, has shipped the disputed products to distribution and retail locations in Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia. Full refunds are being offered for eligible products by the store. No adverse reactions to the chicken have yet been reported.
